Here is my M&P 9mm full sized, added sights, deleted safety and put in Apex trigger.
What did you use to fill the hole where the safety was?
If I remember right S&W will send you some if you ask!

Re: Parts swap

I was bored the other evening, put my M&P 5 inch long slide on my 9c, functions fine, but the 9c slide isn't long enough to make the slide release work on the pro!

Re: SFX Blowback Sparks...

Hmm, a Artie used to say "Very Interesting!"
I was at a match a month ago, a guy had a SFX, one time, one shot sounded much louder, and fire shot out the breech!
Stock ammo, don't know what it was, but everyone noticed but the shooter!
Free fireworks!

Re: Freedomsmith racer for sfx

My LGS had to file the rear of the trigger just a hair!
Looks like it is was filed where the trigger would contact the polymer frame, if I did it myself I would have filed the polymer instead of the trigger to get the travel

Re: S&W M&P Full Size 9mm

Just installed a Apex flat faced trigger and sear kit in the 5 inch Pro, turned it into a 3.5 lb outstanding trigger, put about a hundred rounds thru it as well as the SFX with the new fat daddy trigger, which has about a 4 lb pull to it, but has less than 500 rds thru it so far, the M&P has thousan...

Re: Canik Product Guide

Am liking that Elite-S as well, I can't make use of the threaded barrel, am in IL, so hopefully, it might be a tad cheaper!

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

Thanks so much! Keep it coming! Good advice to buy a variety to test first (and good excuse to shoot). 5000 round buy right off was exaggeration on my part. My 10/22 from the mid 1980's seems to fire any old thing. I think I still have some old 22 Remington lead from the 80's lol. You know, some on...

Re: Gun Lube Suggestions/Motor oil as a gun lubricant

I generally use G96 for overall cleaning, but ALWAYS treat all my weapons with Militec-1 first, even a teeny bit of Militec grease on the slides before final assembly!
It will take away all the grittiness, make all the metal surfaces feel like butter!

Re: 1600 rounds 22lr for $29.99

Anytime you can get 22LR for less than 2 cents a pop is ALWAYS good!

The steel range doesn't care if it is 36 or 40 grain, still goes ting! **==

Re: Belly band holster

I have both the 10x Tactical and the ComfortTac Belly band holsters, use the ComfortTac a bit more. The pocket does collapse after after pulling the weapon, but have never had to draw, I always put the pistol in it's pouch BEFORE I put it on, pretty comfy AIWB, about waistline deep, or sometimes, I ...

Re: Removing barrel from slide

The first time I took my barrel out of my SFX, it was real tight, had to fiddle with it to get it out.
After I took it apart and treated it, and put 350 rounds thru it, it is a lot better now, but still tight!
Tight is all right, it should break in well!
